Build your Garage for Less
Reduce your garage cost with this simple choice
If you’re reading this, you’re thinking about putting up a garage. You’re probably thinking about the things that you will put in your garage and the amount of space that you will enjoy. You may even be dreaming about putting up a small gym in your garage and enjoying the great space for both storage and leisurely activities. While it’s a good idea to dream about the amount of fun and a storage space you will enjoy in your new garage, you have to also realize that putting up a garage involves costs. It can cost you quite a bit of time, effort and money if you do things the wrong way.
The good news is that you can reduce your garage cost projections quite a bit with one simple choice. By choosing to go with pre-made garage kits or steel garage units, you reduce your overall expenditures. Not only do you save time, you can also save labor costs and you can also save costs that are related to future costs because of inflexible building choices. Keep the following considerations in mind.
Reduce Design Costs
If you’re going to put up a garage from scratch, you’re going to have to hire an architect. Architects cost quite a bit of money. An hour of an architect’s time can set you back quite a bit. Also, if you try to go with a general contractor and have their own architect, a lot of the architect’s cost is built in to their estimate and the whole project can cause you a lot more than you originally anticipated. It’s not uncommon for people to get hit with such a high building design cost that they don’t get around to putting up the actual building itself.
Prefab Quonsets Save the Day
If you use pre-made quonset garage buildings, you don’t have to worry about design costs. Why? The building is already designed. That’s the great thing about going with a quonset garage. They really reduce your garage costs when it comes to design.
